Birthday Scrap Page

were used to showcase the memories of my Mom's 80th Birthday!


This month we celebrated my Mom's 80th Birthday!  She wanted a steak so we took her to Texas Roadhouse for a yummy dinner and to document our fun Stampendous stamps and the Project Life pages by Becky Higgins is the perfect way to display it. It was quick and easy all I needed to do was cut four 6x6 white pieces of card stock and stamp the tops then slide them into the pockets with the picture and I was done.

Here are the step by step instructions for stamping the panels.
1. Stamp Birthday Block (by Stampendous in stores soon) on two panels with black Versafine ink, heat set and color the balloons and a couple of words with watercolor pencils.

2.  Stamp Happy Birthday from the Soaring Sentiments set (by Stampendous in stores soon) and the numbers from the Fifteen Candles set with black Versafine.  Using a 2 Way Glue marker, apply ink randomly to top of panel and sprinkle with Scarlet, Amethyst and Leaf Green Fragments (Stampendous).
3.  For the last panel stamp the letters using the Vintage Uppercase and Vintage Lowerecase (by Stampendous in stores soon) with black Versafine.  Cut a thin strip of  Fran's Sticky Panels (by Stampendous in stores soon), apply above letters and sprinkle with Oceanic Crushed Glass Glitter (Stampendous).  Cut a slightly wider strip of Fran's Sticky Panels to apply below the letters and sprinkle with Fresh Green Crushed Glass Glitter (Stampendous).

Have a  great weekend and scrap your memories.
